Russia to design nanotechnology weapons – commander

Abstract:
Principally new weapons based on nanotechnology will be designed in Russia within 15 years for combating radiation, chemical and biological terrorism, the chief of the Russian Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Troops, Colonel-General Vladimir Fillipov, told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.

"In the conditions of the increasing threat of radiation, chemical and biological terrorism, specialists of the troops take an active part in the development of systems and complexes for ensuring safety of facilities of state importance," he said.

"The result of interaction of the troops with research organisations of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the industry has been the creation of a scientific-technological basis that allows looking with cautious optimism at the development of arms and means of radiation, chemical and biologic defence within 15 years," Filippov said.
